Tillamook is my choice to. They have none of those homones that I can never remember, 

"Tillamook cheese is produced rBGH-free, but not their other dairy products."

Spud, thanks for posting the food recall items. We need that information. Also, Spud, I hope you read or watch the permaculture videos and articles. They provide some basic concepts on small home farms. There is one video in particular that I will try to supply for you, if I can find it. 

Randy, I hope you read or watch permaculture material. I talked to a soils guy the other day when I ordered the manure. He saId he found the principles to be sound, especially when grazing animals. He thought grazing animals are the way nature takes care of soil. One doesn't need to not get livestock, just realize there is a bad and a good way to manage a herd.

I prefer Tillamook also.

That reminds me:  I almost broke a tooth on some Del Monte food (Cherry Mixed Fruit cups) a couple of weeks ago.  

I almost never buy things like that, but they were on sale at a very low price.  Anyway, in the 2nd one I ate, I bit into something very hard.  Probably a piece of cherry stone.  Not going to buy that brand again.

Not a problem for me; I stopped eating any kind of pasta the day I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes...almost 15 years ago.  I never enjoyed standing over a boiling pot, testing for "al dente" anyway. 

The only Kraft products I buy from time to time are their natural (non-pasteurized) cheeses when they are on sale (ie:rarely).  I prefer Tillamook brands.  Kraft makes some of the worst-tasting salad dressings in the world, and their mayo is only partially useful for emergency use on squeaky auto parts.

I've heard we can't tolerate grass also, so I'm not going to try it.

When I get some land, I'll raise catfish, rabbits, and perhaps chicken & pigs for food, but no larger animals.  It just sounds like too large an investment for me.

Speaking of eating (or not) grass, I bought and ate a bison burger last night. Expensive meat, but so worth it--delicious and good for you.  For many years now, I've wanted to graze a half dozen or so bison on my farm. I keep trying to talk my son-in-law into including them into his overall management plan. He's skeptical. I'll continue working on him!

As far as I know, only horses and cattle (and similar mammals) can digest grass.  Cats and dogs will swallow some as a purgative, and I don't know if humans can tolerate it at all.  Too much cellulose, or something.

But there are people who will try anything, including clay, cornstarch, and library paste,

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 19, 2015 at 5:31pm

Never tried grass.  I'll try anything that some people eat, but never heard of anyone eating grass.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 19, 2015 at 5:23pm

Thanks Spud, I got it. and it is funny. We permaculture people would pull out the grass and plant spinach or something.
